Region: Côtes du Rhône, France
Varietal: 50% Grenache, 30% Carignan, 20% Mourvèdre
Tasting Notes: “Our Cotes de Rhone has a beautiful red color robe with purple-violet tints. The nose is pleasant, open and rich. Characteristic of young Rhône valley wines, there are sensual aromas of ripe red fruits such as raspberry, crushed strawberry, grenade, juicy cherry. With air, sweet spices appear (cinnamon and nutmeg) adding nice complexity. The palate is full and the attack is supple. The texture in the mouth is quite lovely with smooth and silky tannins. There is a good balance between freshness and sweetness, with an almost creaminess to the palate.” -winemaker notes
Pairing: This blend drinks beautifully with gamier red meats and small game birds, as well as heartier herbed roast root vegetables. One partner I find to be symbiotic is this Sausage Ragù recipe from Sara Jenkins and Nancy Harmon Jenkins. Enjoy!
About: At Domaine André Berthet-Rayne, the passion for winemaking has been passed down for five generations.
The story began in 1880, when the great-grandfather owned several plots of land from which he farmed 6 hectares of vineyards, several olive groves.
Paul Berthet-Rayne, the father of André, subsequently grew this winemaking tradition. Through his work, the domaine’s vineyard and production grew substantially.
Today, André, his wife Marina and their daughter and son-in-law Alexandra and Axel, continue the work carried out with passion by their ancestors.
The winery has 30 hectares of vineyards in the commune of Cairanne, on the left bank of the Rhone. These vineyards contain many old vines, some which are centuries old. They are located on hills with gentle slopes and contain a mix of the different grape varieties found in the Rhone Valley.
